HANDS IN THE DIRT
(3/19/15)


Spring

gardens

yard work

we reconnect
to the earth

to our
origins

to our
conclusions

we perform
timeless
functions
relating us
to all humanity
past
present
and future

we are
here and now
but we are also
everywhere

in every
time

back inside
we clean
the ancient dust
of Antioch
from beneath
our nails

our bodies
to become
future soil
tilled
by distant
fingers
